Born in Milan in 1999, Alessandra Breviario is an emergent installation, video and sound artist currently living and working in Milan.
She studied figurative painting in Italy, near Milan, and visual arts at HSPVA in Houston, TX, before moving to UCA, Farnham, UK where she graduated in Fine Arts (Hons). Coming from a background of visual arts, her practice has evolved into a multimedia exploration of the role that communication plays in re-shaping our perception of the world, especially the botanical world.
Since 2017 she has been exhibiting her work in various group shows in the UK, USA and Italy.
In an era where everything is accessible to anyone, anywhere, at any time, her work concentrates on unique temporary experiences that only exist “now and here”. It aims at the creation of mental and physical spaces, and investigates how these can affect people’s perception and relationship with others and the world. Within the intention of uncovering new ways to communicate, especially with the natural realm, her practice attempts to re-enact a primordial, sensorial connection with the botanical world and to reshape our understanding of it.
A key component in the creation of immersive spaces is represented by sound, employed as an awakening element that can raise awareness about one’s presence in the world, and unlock new ways to understand it through listening.
Although sound is a central element in her practice, her work maintains an experimental approach that refuses to be defined by a media or a process. Particularly, she is interested in seeing how different materials interact with each other and how a media can be translated into another one; for instance how sound can be visualized, how a sensation can be translated into a gesture or how a space can be felt.
Through her multimedia installations she tries to create interactive ecosystems in which the spectators can focus on the present moment and open their minds to new systems of thinking and sensing the world.
